Brooklyn uses the semantic versioning guidelines. Releases will be numbered with the following format:

Brooklyn <major>.<minor>.<patch>

Breaking backward compatibility increments the <major> version. New additions without breaking backward compatibility ups the <minor> version. Bug fixes and misc changes bumps the <patch> version. New major and minor releases zero the less significant counters.

Additionally, Brooklyn's release process include Snapshots, Milestones and Release Candidates.

A Snapshot (-SNAPSHOT) is the bleeding edge. This will not be stable.

Milestone versions (-Mn) are frozen snapshots. Some code features may be stable, but the documentation and examples may not be complete.

A Release Candidate (-rc.n) is a just-about-ready version. Release candidates are tested against our acceptance criteria, and qualifying builds are promoted as final.
